The Zymoglyphic Museum

This museum in San Mateo, California, is the "world's only repository for the study and display of Zymoglyphic art, artifacts, and natural history." It has some very interesting exhibits from history and nature -except there is something unnatural about them. A clue comes from the second definition of the word "zympglyphic":

2. The collection and arrangement of objects, primarily either natural or weathered by natural forces, for poetic effect

Shown here is a Happy Fish (Piscatonius delitus). You'll enjoy finding the "poetic effect" in the exhibits at the museum's website. Link -via Metafilter
